Warrior is well worth a gawp round, there's ship type stuff on it... Like cannons! And rigging! Which is a great day out if you're into that.

I was expecting that a warship so old would have lost much of its internal detail including most of its boilers and engines guns and fittings. This ship is amazing: it appears complete, right down to firearms and mess glassware. A beautiful restoration carried out...More

In my opinion, a lot better than HMS Victory. Left to your own devices wandering around and then staff on hand to ask questions. Perhaps a few more info points at certain location throughout to explain what’s what, however a very satisfying visit

So well preserved. A masterpiece of engineering and beautiful ship. Amazing artefacts on board and a glimpse of how the Victorians went to sea. Loved it.

So I visited after a long break. If disabled, like me, there is one set of steps by the stern, that have a handrail. The others are only fitted with a rope. There is a high step from the bulkhead, but with careyou can get...More

Yes a very short walk from the ferry to the dockyard. One point worth mentioning, the Mary Rose Experience is separate from the Dockyard so you will need to pay both.
